This magnificent image cast in brass and anodized for giving copper’s effect, represents Lord Ganesha, a manifestation blending his two classical image-forms, Ekadanta and Lambodara, both being two of his earliest classified eight forms conceived by early seers for prevailing over eight human weaknesses or natures, namely, ‘moda’ – arrogance, ‘abhimana’ – pride, ‘matsarya’ – jealousy, ‘moha’ – infatuation, ‘lobha’ – greed, ‘krodha’ – anger, ‘kama’ – lust, and ‘mamata’ – possessiveness as also ego. Two of these eight forms, ‘Mahodara’, one with big belly, and ‘Lambodara’, one with corpulent belly, relate to the dimensions of his belly and command two most common aspects of human nature, ‘moha’ and ‘krodha’ respectively. Ekadanta controls ‘moda’; thus, in its combined form this image of Lord Ganesha has been conceived for commanding arrogance, infatuation and anger, three aspects of human nature that most adversely affect a man’s personality.

The Puranas perceived arrogance that Lord Ganesha in his Ekadanta manifestation commands as the aspect of personality that breeds non-acceptance and thereby disharmony with the world and thus with oneself for one is not only destined to live in it but is himself the world, its microcosmic form. Hence, arrogance does not target so much beyond as within oneself. Lord Ganesha as Ekadanta vanquishes arrogance and breeds and nourishes harmony with the world around, the people and the environs. Mythically, Ekadanta eliminates diversions and promotes singleness of mind and symbolises utmost sacrifice to help the righteous as also to punish the wicked. A single tusked form apart, almost a universal feature of his iconography occurring invariably in most of his images, the moon-related myth gave to his image also another most salient feature, the ‘nag-bandha’ – a bellyband consisting of a serpent, mythically the serpent Vasuki. While punishing moon for its arrogance he also punished Vasuki by tying it around his belly for frightening his mount mouse that throwing him away ran for life.

In every form Lord Ganesha is the custodian of knowledge and promoter of learning; however, as Ekadanta his role as the patron of literature is outstanding. As one of the traditions in regard to his single tusk form has it, it was for scribing the great epic Mahabharata that he had removed one of his tusks. After great persuasion sage Vyasa agreed to compose the great epic but on condition that he would dictate it nonstop and wanted someone who recorded it uninterrupted. Lord Ganesha agreed but when taking dictation his pen broke. Pressed under the condition he removed one his tusks and noted with it the rest of the epic. The myth affords the rationale not only as to why the worship of Ganesh precedes the worship of Saraswati, the goddess of learning, when a child begins schooling, but also as to why, till recent times before the use of ivory was legally banned for minimizing cruelty against the innocent animal, an ivory pen was considered as the most prestigious tool of learning.

Dually auspicious and effective, the image, conceived with a huge pot-like belly, combines along with his Ekadanta form his Lambodara and Mahodara manifestations that vanquish infatuation and anger, the two most injurious weaknesses in human nature. Manifesting either as Lambodara or Mahodara – the forms with extra large belly, Lord Ganesha is believed to contain all the universes within it, unfathomable knowledge and all stores of riches. Highly auspicious and delightfully modeled, both forms bless the devotee with natural wisdom, great common sense, ability to face every crisis, and with abundant riches.

Except a variation or two in the attributes that the two forms carry, the two images are almost identical, being four-armed, carrying in normal right hand the broken tusk, ‘modak’ in one of the other hands and a pot in the knotted trunk, and a large pot belly often tied with a serpent comprising a bellyband, alike characteristic of both forms. In other two hands, Ekadanta carries rosary and battle-axe, and Lambodara, noose and goad. The pot : ‘purna-ghata’ is symbolic of accomplishment which the great Lord makes possible. In both manifestations the figure of Lord Ganesha is voluminous cast with bold but highly balanced forms. Hence, ‘utkut akasana’, as this brass-image has, is the best suited sitting mode for these forms. Installed on a three-tiered high pedestal consisting of an octagonal base moulding adorned with lotus forms, a plain narrower one in the middle, and another, as large as the base moulding, on the top, the figure of Lord Ganesha has its thighs straightened as if to support the belly’s volume and bulk on them. In both manifestations the figure of the elephant god has an average height and is adorned with few ornaments, a modest crown and often just a loincloth.

  • Ganesha is a popular religious figure in Indian art. He is portrayed standing, dancing, taking action against demons, though having a playful behavior. Ganesha has the head of an elephant and a human body with a big belly. He has four arms, sometimes more. Ganesha carries various weapons, but is not known to have ever used them. The earliest known stone statue of Ganesha with an inscription dated to 531, found in northern China. In Japan the Ganesha cult was first mentioned in 806. Statues of Ganesha are found in Hindu art of Java, Bali, Borneo, Burma, Cambodia, Thailand. 5th century image of Ganesha was found at Gardez, Afghanistan. In Buddhist Thailand, Ganesha is regarded as a remover of obstacles, the god of success.
